Watching a game during winter means having to sit inside an outdoor stadium when it’s freezing; thus, wearing a good jacket becomes a requirement if you don’t plan on missing out catching a match (or two) over weekends.

Hottest Men (2018)

The hottest men of the year

This year, the (annual) hottest men list includes both stars who had made it on the list during previous years and also two names which had never been seen on it before. These celebrities made the list because, more often than not, they manage to look really good in the public eye and, in my outlook, a feat like that is not easy to accomplish.

The Terrorism Problem in Pakistan

Embed from Getty Images

The second biggest school shooting incident in Pakistan, which had occurred in the winter of 2014 in the town of Peshawar, demonstrated that the Asian state’s problems with terrorism are too deep. The Peshawar incident demonstrates this because the attack had happened in an army school and according to the terrorist group which had conducted it, it had carried out the attack there because of the type of school it was.

It is not uncommon to find Pakistan being controlled by the army; in fact, the state has witnessed several years of army rule.

The battles between successive national governments and terrorist factions in Pakistan are, thus in more ways than one, also battles to govern and run the country; the terrorism problem in the state is thus too deep because it is not just a problem of terrorist factions carry out unsystematic attacks in the state.

Meanwhile, the Pakistani army has stated that a lot of force is required to completely root out extremism from Afghanistan and currently the state does not have the capability to supply that type of force; I think it is unreasonable to expect that kind of a capability when the nation is so poor. Also, the Pakistani army’s words caricature an incorrect idea of the reality in Afghanistan because U.S. troops are already present inside the state and they are contributing to rooting extremism out from the nation. It would be better if Pakistan could stick to the requirement to assure more about the rooting out of the presence of terrorism from the country, rather than comment on Afghanistan, because, right now, it is failing miserably at it.
